    Easiest is the show datapath session counters command:
    (md7010) #show datapath session counters

    First three lines are relevant, in this example you see 1800 active sessions, where the peak value was 5076 and the max is 64k (65536). If peak/high water mark is below the maximum, you are good.

    Hi Herman Robers

    Thank you for your answer, I have a one question. this session show on your capture command is only active firewall feature right? or this is overall session in firewall

    do you have a document output parameter of 'show datapath session counters' like this capture in below

    I'm not sure if I ever seen such an overview. However for the current/high/max sessions you can replace tunnels by firewall sessions to get a proper description of the value. Typically I don't use these other numbers, they may be relevant for troubleshooting and Aruba Support knows how to interpret them.
